Online Business Inspiration
Inspiration can be a catalyst for positive change.
It can also give you a boost during moments of self-doubt (we all have them).
The quotes in this article are from real people running successful online businesses.
Their journeys are unique, but they also share many traits:
- They wanted to spend their time working on something meaningful.
- They persevered when times got tough, pushing through the often difficult early stages of building a business.
- They all worked super hard to get to where they are now.
- Creating online businesses has allowed them the freedom to do what they love. You can do it too.
That’s enough from me. Here’s some words of wisdom from these brilliant people.
Why get a regular job and trade your time for money when you can let technology do all that work for you? Imagine how it would feel to wake up each morning, go to your computer, and check how much money you made while you were sleeping. It's a really nice situation to be in.

When you finally figure out how to make the work from home thing happen for your situation it is one of the most incredible feelings. All of a sudden you realize that you are working on a brand and business that solely belongs to you. All the hours of creativity, late nights and hard work are going directly into an asset that you yourself own. And that is pretty cool!

Society always tells us, we should have a job, we have to work 9 to 5 and so on. Here is the good news. You don't have to. You don't have to do what everybody else is doing. 99% of people live an ordinary life. Be the one who makes a different choice.

Going solo for the first time in my life along with my two amazing kids I've truly learned the meaning of work-life balance. Building websites has given me the freedom to explore happiness in ways I never knew existed. And I have to tell you a secret... it's really not that hard.

Technology has made it possible for us to always be 'in our offices', but that doesn't mean that we have to be a slave to our work. For the first time in history, we have completely removed the limitations of what 'work life' looks like. We can answer emails from the beach, take conference calls while in the carpool lane with our kids. This lack of balance and boundaries is not a bad thing, in fact it is complete and total liberation. I work when I want to, on what I want to, from wherever I want - and I encourage you to do the same.

I calculated that in the last three years I've cracked the $1,000,000 (USD) barrier of making money online. In those three years, my best month was almost $60,000 and my worst was just shy of $12,000. It doesn't seem real to be honest. I am not a tech expert, nor did I grow up in a business-orientated house. No one told me I could do it, and no one taught me how to do it. But you know what? If a small town Irish guy can do it, then there is literally no reason why you can't. Believe in yourself, follow your dreams and don't listen to anyone who tells you you can't.
